Hi I'm Kendall Sariah

I am a college student. I grew up in three different countries. I am athletic, girly, strong, smart, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am super outgoing. I love to read, play soccer, watch football, go snowboarding on the weekends, and smile. I enjoy serving others. I grew up outside the U.S. in Germany and Japan. I have attended Brigham Young University since the fall of 2014. I plan to attend law school, and after graduation I will join the ranks of officers in the Armed Forces. My father and both of my brothers are in the Armed Forces serving our country. We love the military, and the opportunities it has awarded us to travel the world. I love sharing the gospel in other countries, and seeing the benefits of it in other people's lives. German is my second language. I love doing family history, and looking at where my ancestors are from. I don't have an Olympic medal, but I have competed and won many cheer leading competitions around the world, which has always given me the opportunity to share the gospel with new people who share the same love of my sport. I was also a member of our varsity soccer team, allowing me to share an amazing sport with people who don't speak the same language.

Why I am a Mormon

While I was born a member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or the Mormon church, both of my parents are converts who both converted at an older age. I am proud of who I am. I love that my parents found the gospel and their willingness allows me to have the gospel every day. The word gospel means "good news" and I am here to promise you that it is. I love the gospel with all of my heart, and it truly brings joy into the hearts of man. I'm not just talking about happiness, but about joy.

How I live my faith

I attend one of the few LDS universities in the country, however many of my fellow students aren't of the same faith. When I wake up in the morning, I go running then come home to engage in scripture study for personal and educational benefits. When I go home for the holidays, I go to a country where very few are Mormon. Traveling a lot gives me the benefit of being able to share the gospel with people I come in contact with. This allows me to share my testimony and the good news that the gospel brings to my life everyday.
